Pastel, my favorite material to achieve softness and tenderness in the portrayal of women. Pastels are made by grinding pure pigment with chalk. You get lighter, "pastel" colors. And it makes it possible to express the character with a certain material. Pastels were used by many artists of the Renaissance, as well as by prominent artists of the New Age. Until now, in Paris, in a small store "La Maison du Pastel" you can buy pastels, which Degas used to work on his famous series of ballerinas.
The pastels there are handmade using technology and materials unchanged since the 1920s. The color spectrum is 567 shades, and the price per crayon reaches 18 euros.
I prefer to use a limited palette of colors in my work.

Konstantin is a laureate and diploma winner of Russian and international art competitions, actively exhibits, and participates in the exhibition of contemporary Russian artists in Miami: art gallery "EMPORIUM," in the Art Studio in Wynwood, in Art Basel Miami.

Konstantin Fomin works mainly in soft techniques: pastels, charcoal, and sanguine.
The artist is inspired by the human body-figurative graphics and painting. He pays special attention to the artistic interpretation of the theme of time and infinity, emotionally expressed through corporeality. Working in a soft technique involves close contact of the hands with the surface of the sheet. Therefore, the images created by Constantine are literally sculpted on a plane or carved using methods similar to the work of a sculptor. This is a graphic that partly resembles impressionism, in a free, almost sketchy manner, reflecting the transience of time and focusing the viewer on the beauty of the stopped moment.
Konstantin Fomin also works in oil, graphite, ink, book illustration, electronic painting, and develops installations.
